11:11 am
issues do just what their name implies they get between people and drive them apart like a wage and these issues seem to always take the forefront in the media it's things like abortion gun rights marijuana legalization and the weather well the weather isn't really a wedge issue but people sure talk about it way too much there's only so much room in the national discourse and the switch issues just eat up all of the time and attention but the thing is that there's a little something called the tenth amendment you know the one that says that any powers that are specifically delegated the federal government are reserved for the states and last time i checked the constitution doesn't have a special weed clause saying that marijuana has to be an all or nothing a national proposal and that goes for abortion and most other way to shoes also there's a simple answer all these wedge issues just left the states make up their own minds but then again without wages shoes what would the mainstream media have to distract us with but that's just my opinion.

11:23 am
signals intelligence that is these very very sophisticated intercept systems to the detriment of the traditional human intelligence and i think that what we see in washington is a general acceptance of the fact that you can't do that the system is out of balance that they have to have much better human intelligence gathered on the ground to be able to interpret what they've gotten from signals and this is an effort to to address that problem but it also means continuously but wounding budget for intelligence. american police make another controversial step to keep. all personal text messages that's a new proposition submitted to congress group of more than for professionals the experts have to say about that on our website dot com. with benefits a website offering university tuition is exposed in the u.k. get the details online. suggest
